Microsoft has confirmed that it will be cutting Xbox 360 prices internationally in order to make way for the recently announced Xbox 360 Slim model. This may be part of a bid to clear out current inventory of the more bulky existing version before Microsoft discontinues it.
The rumoured Xbox 360 price drops are now official, Microsoft has announced the new Xbox 360 pricing and these prices will take effect from September the 5th.
